Ann Heckel

Owner & Master Stylist

I live in Shelbyville with my husband, two daughters, and our two dogs Tux & Bitty. I love salads and Mexican food, and I enjoy walking and reading.

The one Aveda product I can’t live without is Smooth Infusion Shampoo & Conditioner.

What I enjoy most about my profession is doing upstyles for special occasions. It is such an honor to be chosen to create the hair style to perfectly compliment their dress and makeup. I love to make people feel good about themselves and the way they look.

Megan Janssen

Master Stylist

I recently moved from a small town in Illinois and now reside here in Shelbyville with my husband Nathan, baby boy Rhett, our dog Wilson, and we love Kentucky!

My favorite food is my mom’s spaghetti! I enjoy shopping, anything that involves family or being outside, and attempting to be crafty.

The one Aveda product I cannot live without is Dry Remedy Oil for my dry, frizzy ends! It is a great styling product for smoothing & laying down fly aways, but is also beneficial for feeding the ends of your hair the moisture it may be lacking.

What I love most about my profession is meeting all sorts of people and learning from them, their experiences, and the relationships I build with clients. I specialize in formal upstyles for weddings, proms or any special event. I love playing such an exciting role in my guest’s special day!

I am originally from Indiana but have lived in Kentucky for most of my life & in Shelbyville for 10+ years with my husband, John, and two sons, Sean & Tyler.

In my spare time I love spending time in nature, especially on water in my pink  kayak. It’s amazingly rejuvenating, restoring & relaxing!

My favorite food is anything that pairs well with a great red wine – so that’s almost everything!

I’m definitely a skin geek! I am constantly seeking out the latest skin-science information that helps clients achieve beautiful & healthy skin at any age. It’s very rewarding to work with Aveda’s great facial protocols to make visible, positive changes in my guest’s skin while providing  them a rejuvenating & relaxing spa experience. It’s not just a luxury, but an important part of creating balance & wellness in their lives.

My favorite, cannot live without Aveda product is Balancing Infusion for Dry Skin. I recommend this product to almost all of my clients! It is a powerhouse formulation that supports optimal skin functioning & suppleness – and it smells amazing, too!


Rachel Penick

Guest Services Coordinator

I live in Shelbyville with my husband Wes, where we have just started to build our lives together. Family & friends are so important to me. I like to try and live a well balanced life by being productive in the workplace, and by making time with the people I love a priority.

Pottery is my main hobby, I love to be able to make things with my hands that I can give away as gifts. My two favorite foods have to be ice cream & pizza.

My favorite Aveda product is the Outer Peace Facial Masque because it helps keep my skin looking clean & refreshed. All of Aveda’s products in the skin care line are as equally as amazing as the hair care products.

Being around people is something I enjoy in general, and working at Allure allows great interaction & service to those around me.
